Ntsiki Mazwai has pleaded with the powers that be to release former president Jacob Zuma in an open letter she penned following the unrest allegedly in response to his imprisonment.

In an essay posted to WordPress, Ntsiki said Zuma “Should” be released from prison as the legal process was adulterated during the former president’s trial.

After the former leader was jailed for contempt of court, violent protests erupted across SA and are continuing.

Ntsiki wrote that the black people of the country were suffering because the constitution supposedly didn’t have their best interests at heart.

“What is transpiring before us is that we as black people are actually in the same position we were before 1994. We have no voice or say in what happens in our lives. It is written down for us in the constitution. Written down by whom? Why are we said to have the best constitution in the world when we black people live in a state of poverty?”.

The star said at the heart of it all, the constitution does not benefit marginalised black people and has continued to perpetuate a broken system.

She said even though he is far from innocent, with the justice system’s misguided attempts at persecuting Zuma one should consider not jailing him in the first place.

She pointed out to her readers that she is in no way showing support for Zuma, and that she is in fact an ardent adversary of the former president.
